“Lucia found Jacinta sitting alone, still and very pensive, gazing at nothing. ‘What are you thinking of, Jacinta?’ ‘Of the war that is going to come. So many people are going to die. And almost all of them are going to Hell.’” (William Thomas Walsh, Our Lady of Fatima, p. 94)
Pope Leo XIII: “One day St. Francis was absorbed in ardent contemplation of the wounds of Jesus crucified, and was seeking to take to himself and drink in their exceeding bitterness, when an angel from heaven appeared before him… at once St. Francis feels his hands and feet transfixed, as it were, with nails, and his side pierced by a sharp spear.” (Auspicato #16, Sept. 17, 1882)
